Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘hump day

Hello friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!  You know the days when you put on your clothes and something just doesn’t fit right, or in my case fits too tightly, well that was how my morning started.  As you know on Sunday nights I prepare my outfits for the week but today it was a “pull from the closet” morning.  I put on and then changed 3 skirts, 1 pair of pants, 1 pair of capris and 2 tops because none of them fit right…all too tight!! Not enough “labor” over the holiday, too many Michelobs and Seagrams so now it’s back to the elliptical with a vengeance and summer indulgences are a distant memory!!

After all those changes this is what I ended up wearing, an outfit that is color blocked with my Sorority colors Royal Blue and Gold, (ΣΓΡ ~ Sigma Gamma Rho), and hubby’s Fraternity colors Purple and Gold, (ΩΨΦ ~ Omega Psi Phi).

Top – Goodwill// Skirt – Old Navy// Belt – Rainbow Shops// Wedges – Marshalls

Bangles (separated ) by a large bracelet – Rainbow Shops// White Stone Ring – Avon // Earrings – Samsbeauty.com

I think I hid those extra pounds nicely!!

Today is Hazy Hot & Humid Hump Day. This morning the outside thermometer was reading 80 degrees before 8:00!  Another excessive heat warning is in effect so stay cool, hydrated and please check on the elderly.

This dress has been in my closet for over 10 years and the side slits are high enough to make it cool and comfortable, but not too high so it can be worn to work on a day like today. The faux-suede, strappy sandals were purchased from AVON and the gold tone, gladiator style works well with tribal print in the dress.

Today’s smoothie wasn’t as green as my outfit because I am low on spinach, I used blueberries, strawberries and non-fat yogurt and it was quite tasty.  Today is Hump Day Wednesday and the week is dragging after last week’s short one but I am plowing through in anticipation of another great weekend.

When the work week begins with a holiday it seems like the rest of the week just flies by ~ I can’t believe it’s already Hump Day Wednesday.

This skirt was thrifted and I was attracted to it because of the graduated colors as well as the elephant and giraffe prints. I was going to wear it with a sleeveless tank but instead paired it with this reddish-burgundy top purchased from Marshalls or Ross. The bronze Pesaro sandals are a closet staple and are my go-to slip on-s when I don’t want to wear higher heels.
